I have faith only in God and the lofty destiny of our adored monarch.
Destiny is a mysterious force that none can comprehend.
Our destiny is shaped by our actions and decisions, not by chance.
The destiny of our nation is riding upon the upcoming election.
Some people are very concerned about their eternal destiny.
You say: join our brotherhood and we will show you the aim of life, the destiny of man, and the laws which govern the world.
Whether or not you admit it, destiny is shaping our lives.
Are you sure that our destiny is controlled by the stars?
All of the events leading up to our meeting could not have been coincidental, it must be destiny.
I don't believe in the concept of destiny. I choose my own path.
Don't listen to him. You can be the master of your own destiny!
The greatest enigma is the puzzle of man's ultimate destiny.
Our family's destiny is dependent upon you, Andrew.
My friend Katherine teaches a workshop about how to control your own destiny and take charge of your future.
Destiny is ridiculous, anyone can change their future by the decisions they make.
He stepped back to surrender Destiny.
Carmen hurried over to Destiny.
Ohhh! she said, hugging Destiny.
He nodded toward Destiny.
Here and now his destiny became certain.
As busy as she was, time had to be set aside for play with Destiny.
When she reached Destiny's room, Jonathan was already dressed and was helping Destiny.
Felipa held her hands out to Destiny.
Each of them hugged him and talked briefly to Destiny.
Pulling the rail back up, she stood beside the tent, helplessly watching Destiny cry until she coughed herself into another retching fit.
It will be so much fun to work on it with Jonathan and Destiny.
Jonathan and Destiny's room had two twin beds in it, as well as a television.
Alex leaned over and kissed Destiny's cheek.
If I hadn't taken Destiny...
We would not let him get on the horse with Destiny.
After the fitting, Carmen retrieved Destiny.
By the time they got back and dressed for supper, Destiny's eyelids were drooping.
In the morning she opened her eyes to find Destiny's face only inches away from hers.
It made a safe ball that didn't go far, which was perfect for Destiny.
In a quiet room with no one looking on, she managed to get her emotions under control by focusing on Destiny.
Carmen wiped Destiny's face and eyes with the cool rag and used a tissue to wipe her nose.
That evening after Destiny and Jonathan were asleep, Carmen was picking up in their room.
Destiny stared at Alex over Carmen's shoulder and Jonathan was so focused on Alex that he nearly ran into Alondra.
After Alex goes to work and Jonathan goes to school, Destiny and I do the chores.
Finally Carmen picked up Destiny and stood.
Carmen set Destiny on the floor and then sat down beside Alex.
She finished buttoning Destiny's dress.
Carmen stood and took Destiny's hand.
She helped Destiny into her chair and smiled thanks to Alex as he held hers.
Felipa took Destiny to see a Disney movie, saying that Mama needed some time to herself.
Destiny is with Felipa.
I'm going down to get Destiny.
I have to go get Destiny.
She found Felipa and Destiny in the dining room where they were having an ice cream snack.
They talked for a few minutes and then Carmen left to take Destiny to their room.
Carmen shoved a wide-eyed Destiny into his arms and turned to follow Dulce.
The door to Destiny & Jonathan's room was closed.
I'm going to take Destiny and Jonathan down to say good-bye.
Finally she turned to Destiny and Jonathan.
By the time she finished bathing and dressing Destiny, Jonathan was in bed.
Carmen kissed Destiny goodnight and shut the door to their room.
Carmen and Destiny dressed mother/daughter style in red/green/yellow plaid blouses and hunter green jeans.
She combed Destiny's hair into pig tails, and then on impulse, did the same with hers.
Jonathan was staring out the window and Alex was playing with Destiny.
Destiny grew tired of trying to get her attention and finally went to her room to play.
When Alex came home that evening, Jonathan was in his room painting and Destiny was topping off her nap.
Destiny glanced up at Carmen from her elevated chair at the table and then her attention swung back to Alex.
A few days later when Carmen and Destiny were visiting Katie, the issue popped out of her mouth in another conversation.
Katie was peeling potatoes at the kitchen sink and Carmen was holding Destiny, watching her.
Carmen sat Destiny on the floor and picked up the pan of pealed potatoes, along with a paring knife.
Destiny followed her and Carmen pulled the chair beside her out so she could crawl into it.
She lifted Destiny into her arms.
Alex decided to build a room upstairs for his office, out of the reach of Destiny's exploring hands.
The work on the nursery became work on Destiny's new room.
They had nearly completed the room when Destiny got sick.
When Alex came home Destiny crawled into his lap.
He stood and lifted Destiny, putting an ear to her chest.
We're going to take Destiny to the hospital.
"Where's the thermometer?" he asked, his focus still on Destiny.
He lifted Destiny so her head lay on his shoulder.
Jonathan, help your mother put the food up and I'll get Destiny into her coat.
Destiny sat on Carmen's lap and Alex held her arm while the pediatric nurse inserted an IV.
If only she could take Destiny's pain and fear.
As if Destiny had not been through enough already, she was forced to stay inside the tent.
Preventing Destiny from crawling out of the bed wasn't easy.
Finally, exhausted by tears, Destiny fell asleep.
Nurses came into the room off and on all night to check on Destiny, but she continued to sleep.
When I told her about Destiny, she asked if she could come up and help.
His attention shifted to Destiny, who was still sleeping.
Destiny was still asleep when Carmen and Katie left the hospital.
Destiny woke several times during the night, but went back to sleep when she saw Carmen was there.
Destiny woke and ate a few bites before going back to sleep.
Instead of improving, Destiny got steadily worse.
Carmen assigned responsibility for that to herself because she didn't notice early enough that Destiny was sick.
Was God punishing Destiny because they had been greedy?
Would god take Destiny from them - a trade for the twins?
She had barely thought about the twins since Destiny went into the hospital.
Less than an hour after the phone call, Destiny woke up in a fit of coughing.
Destiny clung to her neck, coughing and crying in turns.
Carmen pushed the button for the nurse and cuddled Destiny.
When the nurse arrived, she took Destiny's temperature and said something about the doctor.
A few minutes later they came in and got Destiny to take her for more x-rays.
After the doctor left, Carmen stood over Destiny, looking down at her tiny body while she slept.
Hands clasped, she prayed fervently, asking God not to let Destiny suffer for what they had done.
How is Destiny doing?
If he was coming down with a cold, he needed rest - and Destiny didn't need to be exposed to it.
Destiny didn't need her at the moment.
To her horror, she discovered it was Destiny breathing.
Destiny coughed and sat up with a wale that sounded more like a broken growl.
Destiny coughed again and then retched.
Carmen let the bed rail down and jerked the tent from under the mattress, allowing Destiny to crawl close.
Taking special care not to crimp the IV cord, she cuddled Destiny close.
Destiny stiffened with a fit of coughing and then drug a deep rattling breath.
Carmen grabbed a tissue from the table next to the bed and wiped Destiny's nose.
She was right, of course, but having mama stand there watching her suffer was just as upsetting for Destiny.
Carmen disentangled herself from Destiny and urged her to lie down.
Destiny cried harder, clinging to her hands and trying to get back into her arms.
She probably thought Destiny was a spoiled child.
The nurse would have no way of knowing how uncharacteristic this behavior was for Destiny.
Destiny suddenly stopped crying and stared at the door.
He lifted his hand and displayed a doll to Destiny.
Destiny's eyes lit up when she saw it.
Carmen handed Destiny the doll and she wrapped it in her arms.
Minutes later when the nurse arrived with a syringe of medicine, Destiny was asleep again, still clutching the doll to her chest.
He certainly had Destiny's approval - and the admiration appeared to be mutual.
Carmen gazed down at Destiny inside the oxygen tent.
Destiny probably wouldn't wake before they returned, and even if she did, Señor Medena would keep her occupied.
"How is Destiny?" he asked.
He's watching Destiny right now.
He said Destiny's fever had broken and if she continued to improve, they would take the tent off her bed in a few days.
She couldn't be with Destiny and Alex at the same time.
Destiny is getting better.
He's at home with Jonathan and he can't come in because Destiny might catch what he has.
Destiny got well and came home.
Destiny jumped up and charged him.
Alex hugged Destiny and kissed her before turning to Carmen.
Carmen was making the bed while Destiny slept in.
Destiny helped her with planting the green bean seeds.
It was wandering around, getting close to Destiny.
Destiny immediately followed her command, looking back at the skunk.
Destiny ran to Carmen, her eyes large.
Once inside, she locked the door and ordered Destiny to stay in the house while she called Alex.
Carmen watched with Destiny while they waited anxiously for Alex.
He nodded and looked at Destiny as he spoke.
Besides, Destiny would be there to assist with creating the required amount of restraint.
With the food warming, Carmen took Destiny to her room and dressed.
She applied light colored lipstick and then put some on Destiny's lips.
She helped Destiny into a frilly white dress with yellow trim and they both finished up with white sandals.
Carmen tied Destiny's curls with a yellow ribbon.
Destiny wanted to wear some jewelry too, so she let her wear the white pearl choker necklace that her mother had given her.
When Destiny wanted to wear a ring like mommy, Carmen tied a yellow ribbon around her finger and made a bow of it on the top.
When they spotted his truck, Destiny squealed.
Destiny was a little lady, waiting until he came into the kitchen before plowing into him.
Alex divided his attention between a very attentive Destiny and a reserved Carmen.
Destiny asked, holding out her skirt.
Destiny wandered off to her room to play.
He picked up the newspaper and settled into his chair while she checked on Destiny.
Carmen climbed off Alex's lap and took Destiny's soft little hand in hers.
She ran the bath water for Destiny and helped her into the tub with her toy before rejoining Alex.
Destiny's voice came reassuringly from the bathroom as she played.
Destiny's voice sang from the other room.
He released her without objection and she walked away to get Destiny.
After her bath, Carmen dressed Destiny for bed.
Destiny's eyelids drooped and paused, then opened wide.
She was slicing some left over pork roast for a recipe tomorrow when Alex walked in and announced that Destiny and Jonathan were asleep.
Everyone was watching her with a horrified expression - even Jonathan and Destiny.
They had already made arrangements for Katie and Bill to watch Jonathan and Destiny while they went to pick up the babies.
Katie arrived an hour later to pick up Jonathan and Destiny, and thirty minutes later Carmen and Alex were in the car headed for the airport.
We didn't have Jonathan when he was an infant, and there was so much sadness at the time Destiny was born.
Was what she felt for Gabriel nothing more than destiny and Immortal laws she knew nothing about?
Why try to help her, if he knew her destiny already?
Darkyn's assertions about her destiny being with him left her in a foul mood.
In truth, destiny is like the web of a black widow.
"At least I can save other women from that destiny," she said.
How did she accept her destiny as his mate?
"Up until today, I wasn't convinced that this might have been destiny from the beginning," she began.
Knowing what she did now about her destiny, would she have sought out a deal with Darkyn?
Deidre was being asked by the woman who stole her lover and her destiny for advice.
This time, there was nothing else standing between her and her destiny.
In the course of three days, the goddess had almost learned to see him as an equal while her human side no longer in denial about her destiny.
He lifted Destiny from the rug in her room where she had fallen asleep and gently placed her in her bed.
Destiny would be two years old before long.
He picked up the toys Destiny had been playing with and put them in the toy box.
Carmen pitched the disposable diaper in the trash and hefted Destiny from the changing table.
Destiny was big for her age.
Destiny was born less than a week after Josh died.
Alex and Carmen were the only parents Destiny had ever known.
Unlike Jonathan, though, Destiny had natural grandparents to spoil her – and they did.
Josh was gone now, and Lori didn't want anything to do with Destiny.
Focusing on the present, Carmen straightened Destiny's frilly yellow Easter dress and brushed the thumb from her mouth.
Destiny stared up at her with big gray eyes that questioned her motive.
Setting Destiny back on the changing table again, Carmen pushed a shoe back on her foot and tickled her under the arm.
Destiny giggled, revealing top and bottom teeth in matching pairs.
Destiny's eyes lit up.
She smiled, remembering the day they took Destiny home from the hospital.
Like her adoptive mother, Destiny was mesmerized by the chocolate gaze and rich deep voice.
Alex had been so shocked when Carmen offered to take Destiny home unconditionally.
Carmen lifted Destiny from the changing table again and turned as Alex walked into the room.
Carmen forced her mind from dreamland again and stood Destiny on the floor.
Alex was talking to someone in the living room as she led Destiny down the hallway.
"What's wrong?" she asked as Destiny abandoned her hand and flung herself at him.
Carmen's first impulse was to snatch Destiny back, but the six months waiting period had long passed.
It was an open adoption and Lori had every right to see Destiny.
When they entered the living room, Lori's full attention riveted on Destiny.
After a moment, she stepped forward and held out her hands to Destiny.
Destiny drew back, clutching Alex around the neck possessively as she stared at Lori.
Lori's disappointed statement left the impression that she expected Destiny to know her.
"Destiny," Alex said, watching Lori expectantly.
Jonathan was no more blood relation to them than Destiny, but neither child could have been loved more deeply nor considered more a family member.
Alex tried to disentangle Destiny, but she held on tight and started to whine.
He tried to shift Destiny so that he had an unobstructed view of Lori.
He pealed Destiny from his neck and handed her to Carmen, his voice softening as he spoke to Destiny.
Destiny let go of him and reluctantly transferred to Carmen.
Carmen cuddled Destiny close while keeping her attention on Alex and Lori.
Being wrong won't stop her from taking Destiny if she's determined, though.
She agreed because she didn't want Destiny then.
While Destiny could never take her place, she had filled the void.
Deep inside, all she could think about was that Lori might want revenge more than she wanted Destiny.
Her life revolved around Alex, Jonathan and Destiny.
Alex and Bill had wandered off with Jonathan and the twins, as usual, which left Carmen with Katie and Destiny.
"I doubt she came back to get Destiny," Katie said.
I imagine she figures if she gets Destiny, she'll get the farm and the insurance money.
Poor Destiny will be left with nothing.
If he had lived, maybe Lori would have kept Destiny.
Carmen had worked with Josh's parents to reserve both the money and the farm for Destiny.
Alex had already set aside a trust fund for both Jonathan and Destiny, and Carmen was listed as an equal partner in everything.
Alex refused to let her attach his name to that, so she had made provisions for it to be left to Jonathan and Destiny.
There were only three things that mattered to her – Alex, Jonathan and Destiny.
The fact that Lori said she didn't want Destiny when she was born didn't mean that she wasn't feeling bad about it now.
The lawyer assured Alex that Lori could not take Destiny from them at this point.
And yet, in spite of her comment about only being there for a short time, Lori came back several times to visit Destiny.
Destiny had finally reached the point that she would tolerate being held by Lori, but after a few minutes she was ready to get down or go to Alex, Carmen or Jonathan.
Her focus right now seemed to be winning Destiny, but Destiny didn't warm to people easily.
I wondered if I could get Destiny tomorrow.
"I'm sure Destiny will really enjoy it," Carmen said.
Later that evening, Carmen was reading a book to Destiny and Jonathan was sprawled out on the window seat, reading a book about horses.
Destiny gradually relaxed and Carmen stopped reading.
His gaze shifted to Destiny and he placed the cup on the granite bar.
Lifting Destiny into his arms, he gazed down at her sleeping face and smiled.
Katie wants to keep Destiny today, so I'll drop her off and then take Jonathan to the school for his field trip when I go for the conference.
Spooning eggs into a plate for Jonathan and a bowl for Destiny, she returned the pan to the stovetop.
I'll go get Destiny ready while you eat.
It took exactly one hour to take Destiny over to Katie's and drop Jonathan off at the school before meeting with his teacher.
Carmen was waiting for Alex outside the clinic with Destiny one day when the red-headed man strolled up to the car.
"Let's not talk about it now, Carmen," he said, glancing at Destiny.
Destiny is as much a part of me as she is of you.
If Lori hadn't admitted that she loved Alex the day Destiny was born, the idea that the two of them were romantically involved probably wouldn't have crossed her mind.
I can't let her take Destiny away from you.
So in her eyes, I took Josh and you from her – and now Destiny.
Maybe she'd like to take both you and Destiny away from me.
She also must know why it was so important to him that she didn't take Destiny.
If her present methods were not working, she might simply decide to take Destiny and run – if Destiny was what she wanted.
Lori, I know I told you in the hospital that I would let you have Destiny when you were ready, but I hadn't talked to Alex about it yet.
I was thinking about you then, not Alex or Destiny.
She pulled in behind his truck and took Destiny out of the car.
Destiny, giggling and ran at her side, caught up in the fun.
"Tickle her Destiny!" he said.
Destiny's little fingers wiggled on Carmen's ribs and she laughed.
Destiny squealed with delight and did it again.
We'll take care of Destiny.
They were happy with each other, and whatever Destiny might have been born, she was a Barnett now.
Glancing around to make sure Destiny was still safely in the little pen inside the barn, she pulled the phone from its holster on her side and called Alex.
Lifting Destiny from the pen, she continued with the chores.
She filled the feeder and let Destiny throw some grain through the fence.
She squatted down to show it to Destiny.
Destiny touched its soft furry body and stubby ears.
The tiny pink nose wiggled and the pink eyes regarded Destiny suspiciously.
Destiny giggled and looked up at Carmen.
Back at the house, Carmen prepared the chicken for the oven while Destiny sat in her high chair playing with some cereal.
When Alex came home for lunch, Carmen picked up Destiny and followed him to the barn.
Why don't you call Mums and see if she'll watch Destiny?
Carmen called Mums, who said she would come over and pick up Destiny.
She offered to watch Destiny overnight and Alex said that might be a good idea.
After lunch, Mums arrived to get Destiny.
Destiny ran to her, excitedly.
Destiny wasn't her only granddaughter, but all of the others were in their teens.
Alex held his arms out to Destiny.
Destiny leaned toward him and kissed him enthusiastically.
Mums was still chuckling as she buckled Destiny into the car.
On Saturday Carmen left Alex with Jonathan and Destiny, heading for the old house.
Where are Jonathan and Destiny?
Jonathan would stay with Katie for the night and the Reynolds would keep Destiny.
Right now Destiny and Jonathan need someone strong to lean on.
They still hadn't caught the red-headed man, but they had a regular patrol, so Carmen took Jonathan and Destiny home with her.
As if they all didn't have enough to worry about, as soon as Carmen put Destiny down inside their home, she started calling for Alex.
Jonathan tried to tell Destiny that Alex wasn't there, but she continued to look anyway.
Only after both Destiny and Jonathan fell asleep did Carmen take her shower and go to bed.
As May gave way to June, the lengthening daylight hours gave her more time to be with Jonathan and Destiny and still complete taking care of the animals before darkness.
Each morning she took Jonathan to camp before dropping Destiny off at Katie's house and returning to the hospital.
One night after chores, Carmen, Jonathan and Destiny were eating supper when Brutus started barking.
Do you honestly think I'd send him into a place where Destiny was?
Destiny stared up at her.
She glanced at Destiny.
None of this would get Destiny back.
"It wasn't Destiny," she said, and bit her lower lip.
We all love Destiny so much and you knew we would provide a good home.
A red-eyed Lori went out on the porch and talked to them while Carmen got Destiny ready for bed.
Destiny reached for her and Lori took her, holding her close.
Destiny wrapped her arms around Lori's neck.
One day, when Destiny was with Grandma Reynolds and Jonathan was at staying with a friend, she decided to go down to the house before she went to the hospital.
That night she and Jonathan picked up Destiny and then headed home.
She could do nothing without endangering both Destiny and Jonathan.
The only thing that kept her from breaking down was the fact that Jonathan and Destiny needed her.
Destiny no longer mentioned Alex, and even Jonathan seemed resigned to living without him.
Carmen left early to pick up Destiny so that Katie could go see Alex.
The restraining order is for Destiny, not Alex.
Destiny was sitting no more than five feet away now.
Later, after Destiny fell asleep and Jonathan went to his room, Lori regarded her thoughtfully.
That evening, when she picked Destiny and Jonathan up, Katie had an interesting perspective on the incident.
I wonder what Destiny and Jonathan will think.
And Destiny won't know what to think at first, but she will be delighted to have you home.
Are you still worrying about Jonathan and Destiny?
It's time to go get Destiny.
Alex walked toward her and it was a minute before Destiny spotted him.
Destiny stared at him for a minute, her expression unreadable.
Destiny watched him warily, still clinging to Carmen.
Destiny cowered against her, watching Alex intently.
Destiny was in her high chair playing with fruit colored cereal.
Neither of them acted like they noticed Destiny was there, and she only watched them, apparently unconcerned.
Destiny squealed and when Alex turned to look at her, she lifted her arms for him to pick her up.
While their relationship was strained, his relationship with Jonathan and Destiny had returned to normal.
The meeting only lasted an hour, and when she returned, Destiny was taking a nap.
By the time she finished showering and dressing, Alex had Destiny ready.
Jonathan hurried off to bible class and it was Carmen's turn to help out with the infants, so she took Destiny with her.
When they were getting ready to leave, Alex took Destiny from Carmen's arms and opened the door for her.
With Destiny buckled in safely and Jonathan sitting beside her, he climbed behind the wheel and started the car.
Alex climbed down and lifted Destiny out of the buggy.
Destiny wore herself out and fell asleep in the buggy on the way back.
A few steps down the hall the other way assured him Destiny was still asleep.
Destiny wasn't awake yet when I left and Jonathan is watching her.
For the first time, Destiny warmed quickly to someone.
Destiny hugged him and kissed him goodbye, and Jonathan shook his hand.
Destiny was watching a children's show on television.
Her destiny lies with Death.
Deidre squared off against the waist high wall between her and her destiny.
There is no single event that determines the outcome of one's destiny, he said with a shake of his head.
If you do as I tell you, you will increase his chances of surviving the destiny Darkyn intends to inflict upon him.
"You can't influence destiny, Gabe," she said.
The thrum of warm energy coursed through her again, and she felt again her destiny was tied with his.
She didn't know what she felt for him, but he was her destiny.
Gazing into her eyes he found his destiny.
Destiny's little fists were waving and her face was getting red.
Destiny didn't need any encouragement.
So far Carmen had been incredibly patient with Destiny's demands.
She didn't jump the minute Destiny made a sound, but she did tend to her needs, speaking in a soft loving voice.
That always seemed to calm Destiny.
Maybe that was why Destiny was afraid of being left alone.
As she had said, Destiny would have the love she deserved, and Lori would have the time to recover from grief before her decision became irreversible.
Destiny was another story.
His gaze dropped to Destiny and found her asleep.
Jonathan had named her Destiny Lane.
He carefully stood and gently placed Destiny in her bassinet.
It is his destiny as the Grey God.
It is your destiny to choose which world survives.
If she did not follow her destiny soon, she, too, would endanger all she loved.
Katie and Bill would be watching Natalie, Matthew and Destiny.
Destiny spotted him first and stood on her chair, bouncing up and down with excitement.
He plucked Natalie from her chair and sat down between Katie and Destiny.
Destiny grabbed Alex around the neck and planted a wet kiss on his cheek.
I'll get Natalie, Matthew and Destiny.
Destiny was that way when she was younger.
Alex helped her put them in bed before Destiny latched on to him.
Destiny's eyelids kept drooping and then she would open her eyes wide as if afraid she might miss something good.
When Destiny finally fell asleep, Alex carried her to her room.
Jonathan was eager to get his turn, so Carmen watched Matthew, Natalie and Destiny.
Destiny covered her ears after the first shot.
When he and Destiny go to school this fall, why don't we take a vacation – just you and I?
Jonathan and Destiny might understand, but the twins wouldn't.
Little feet pounded across the living room into the kitchen and Destiny interrupted them in an excited voice.
Natalie and Matthew were in the nursery and Jonathan and Destiny were still in Sunday school classes.
They left Natalie, Mathew and Destiny with a sitter.
Carmen arranged for the twins and Destiny to stay with Grandma Reynolds so that she wouldn't be distracted when her guests arrived.
Natalie and Mathew were in their high chairs, Destiny and Jonathan sat on either side of her and Alex was at the end of the table.
Destiny will be five in October and Jonathan will be thirteen in November.
Destiny cried every time Carmen left.
If Destiny had been a few years older, she could have gone with them.
The next morning Katie arrived early to collect Destiny and the twins.
Apparently the arrangement pleased Destiny because she stopped crying when Carmen left her.
After supper the twins and Destiny crawled into his lap and listened quietly as he read them a story.
Destiny stood behind them, leaning on the back of the seat.
"You know," Carmen began as she handed a sandwich to Destiny.
She took Destiny and the Twins to another store to shop.
Destiny selected a few light dresses and Carmen bought some clothes for the twins.
Destiny sat up straight and eyed Alex.
Natalie, Matthew and Destiny are all in bed asleep and Jonathan is practicing his violin.
Destiny and the twins think he's on a business trip.
The twins and even Destiny cried about every small thing that didn't go their way.
The other issue manifested in a loud wail from Destiny's room.
Both twins were crying and destiny was pouting.
It was Destiny this time, and Jonathan stood beside her, holding Matthew.
The shoulder protested when she put an arm around Destiny, but right now Destiny was more important.
She pulled Destiny's dress out and hung it while tears coursed down her cheeks.
So is Destiny, and she isn't even a blood relation.
She was in the floor with Jonathan, Destiny, Matthew and Natalie playing with the puppy when Alex came home.
Destiny reached up and touched the cat.
Carmen lowered the kitten so that Destiny could reach her.
The kitten pushed her head into Destiny's hand and began a loud purr.
Alex winked at Carmen and shifted his attention to Destiny.
Destiny hopped up and down.
I'm simply stating that I'm not leaving my destiny to the whim of a man.
Certainly. But clearly, I am meant to be here, now, to fulfill this destiny.
Had she ever been able to breathe without the vise of her destiny squeezing her chest?

More original, perhaps, is the argument in the immediately preceding work, The Destiny of Man, viewed in the Light of his Origin (1884), which is, in substance, that physical evolution is a demonstrated fact; that intellectual force is a later, higher and more potent thing than bodily strength; and that, finally, in most men and some "lower animals" there is developed a new idea of the advantageous, a moral and non-selfish line of thought and procedure, which in itself so transcends the physical that it cannot be identified with it or be measured by its standards, and may or must be enduring, or at its best immortal.
